Atlantic Coast Conference Celebrating IB
by By Emily Drake - Wednesday, May 4, 2016
On the 15th of April, seven other students and I travelled to Bridgewater, Nova Scotia to be a part of the eighth annual ACC IB conference. While there, we received information about the different universities on the east coast and how being a part of IB can make your university experience better. We attended various workshops and seminars and listened to testimonies of previous IB students who told about how IB led them to successful careers. We also has the chance to communicate with other students in the IB program and to share our personal experiences.
One of the highlights of the trip for me was the university games that all students participated in on Friday night. Our skills were challenged uniquely as well as our ability to think and work as a team through fun games and challenges; I wish I could do it again. Overall, the conference was a really great experience and I learned a lot about the opportunities that IB opens up for its students and how IB is actually a really great program to be a part of.
